Me and my bitch, took a little trip
Down to the garden, took a little dip (oh no)
Apple juice falling from her lips took a little sip, little sip
Took a little sip, took a little sip
T-T-Took a little, took a little, took a little sip
J. Cole is speaking on Adam and Eve going to the Forbidden Garden and Eve took a bite of the Forbidden Fruit, the apple. J. Cole sees a woman’s lips and is being provoked into something sinful, just like Eve provoked Adam and created sin by eating and sharing the apple. Through this, he sees the truth.
A possible double entendre: Cole and his chick are having intercourse and he’s tasting her “apple juice” from her lips.
Following the chronological order of the album, as the hook plays right after the ‘Where’s Jermaine Skit’, it also furthers the plot of Born Sinner by showing him skipping church to go hang with his girl.
